If you are looking for a good laptop and eyeing the Apple 12-inch MacBook and the base MacBook Pro 13-inch (2016) without panel Touch Bar is likely to be the first in the list. The 13-inch model is sold at a price of 119 990 rubles, 12-inch model available in Russia for 106 990 rubles. That is, the device located approximately in one price category. The Creator of the YouTube channel PhoneDog decided to compare the performance of the two flagship Apple notebooks to help everyone to make the right choice.
MacBook Pro passed the first test, showing Geekbench 3391 points in single-core and 7175 points in multicore mode. MacBook completed the test a few seconds and showed 2949 points in the mode of one core, and 6046 of points in multi-core mode.
As the SSD has a significant impact on the performance of the computer, the second was test the speed of read and write drive. In this test the new MacBook Pro is seriously outperformed its rival. 12-inch MacBook showed the read speed at 800 MB/s and write speed of about 950 MB/s, while the MacBook Pro shows 1356 MB/s and 2000 MB/s, respectively. It is noteworthy that the new Apple laptop, probably would have shown a better result, but the utility that measures the performance of the SSD is limited to 2000 MB/s.
The final test was to render a 4-minute video in 4K resolution at 24 frames per second. Finished first MacBook Pro a 2 minute 36 seconds, which is less than the length of the video. 12-inch MacBook completed the render in 5 minutes 15 seconds.
The base model 13-inch MacBook Pro (2016) proved to be much more productive MacBook. It is the new “Proshka” only 15 000 rubles more expensive. In PhoneDog I believe that this is the case when it is necessary to overpay for a newer device, receiving a more powerful laptop, although not as elegant as the 12-inch MacBook.
